I’m so weak

Contests: There’s still time to enter! The deadline for both is Saturday September 30. To find out how to enter, go to the Sock Hunt and Dragon Hunt posts for details. PS: If you read the original post from last Friday, there has been a slight update/added hint to the Sock Hunt, making it a bit easier.

A Decision: I have just decided to put myself on a yarn diet through the end of the year. I simply don’t need any more yarn right now. And in fact, i’ve actually been resisting and trying not to buy any yarn lately. Scout’s Indie Swag Club was such a HUGE temptation… I so wanted in but I managed to talk myself out of it. Lately, I’ve only been buying yarn for soon-to-be-knit projects (eg: scarves for donation) or for gifts. I’ve been happy with my moderation.

However, a huge hole broke through my restraint today when I got a newsletter from Kpixie about some scrummy sock yarn in stock from All Things Heather and new-to-me The Fiber Denn. Before I knew it, my mouse clicked and sent in an order for one skein of each.

Now, I would like to declare publicly and clearly here that I shan’t buy any yarn until after the new year begins. One exception is that I can purchase for a gift/swap, if needed. It’s doubtful that would happen because I’ve shopped already for specific colors or projects as mentioned above. I’m all set for the next 3 months! (Reminder to myself, no yarn shop surfing = more knitting time!)

    I should go on a yarn diet too. I’ve been buying WAY too much yarn in the past month and I’m starting to get a backlog of projects:b I think I found the elusive Limedragon, but I haven’t e-mailed you yet:)

    Maybe there’s a yarnaholics anon group? “Y.A.”

    Hi, my name is ____ (”Hi _____!”) and I haven’t bought yarn in ________ days. (”wow! – good for you!”)

    I need to be on a yarn diet too. I look at my stash and it’s not like I don’t have anything to knit! But, I cave in and buy something new. Good luck!
